Chris Wright Says 'Nothing Is Certain' On Report That He Has MS

A report surfaced from EuroSport.com that former Georgetown Hoyas guard Chris Wright may have multiple-sclerosis, but Wright denies that anything is certain yet about his health.

The original report stated that Wright was complaining of ankle pain and pain on the right side of his body, so the team sent him to Istanbul to be further evaluated. The report intimated that Wright was diagnosed with MS and would be forced to retire from professional basketball, but Wright indicates that nothing is certain yet.

If Wright does in fact have MS, it would be no shock that he would need to retire from professional basketball. People suffering from MS often deal with fatigue, dizziness, spasms, impaired cognitive ability, and problems with their vision.
